I'm getting the feeling it is best to just leave it alone.
Simply put, it's the same reason that JB4 and PROcede has multiple options. Each car performs differently, resides in different areas, has different environmental conditions, etc. To be locked down to one safe value, while nice, is not something I want to be restricted to. I honestly wish someone would come up with something more along those lines for us, so that we could really tap into the potential of the car. And there aren't 4 settings, there are 28 settings.

The JBD is a solid, solid product. However, as I said above, not all cars are created equal, and while Terry (and the other tuners) do their best to create a 'safe zone' for the tunes so that you can enjoy them without (much) worry. You're the first person I've heard have that problem in over 2 years, to be honest.
